While two Waldo County high school girls basketball squads lost by lopsided margins Tuesday night, a third saw a home victory snatched from them in overtime.

Mount View of Thorndike lost to visiting Oak Hill of Sabattus 33-31 in overtime, while Belfast could not match the fire power of visiting Leavitt of Turner in a 71-28 defeat. Also, visiting Islesboro fell to host Calvary Chapal of Orrington 39-10.

Oak Hill 33, Mount View 31 (OT) … Despite being relatively young and working to improve as the season goes along, the Mustangs have played well at times this season and notched key victories, most notably against previously unbeaten Medomak Valley of Waldoboro. However, on Tuesday, Mount View let a potential home victory slip away.

The Mustangs (4-4), who lost four starters and seven of their top eight players from 2008-09 to graduation, trailed late in the game, but battled back by scoring seven points in the final few minutes to force overtime. In the extra four-minute frame, the Raiders of Sabattus (4-4) held the edge.

Oak Hill led 18-14 at halftime and by 10 points with about five minutes remaining in the fourth stanza before the Mustangs stormed back. On Tuesday, Mount View controlled the boards but could not convert a high percentage of their second and third shots.

Mount View’s fullcourt pressure defense created turnovers and helped lead the hosts back into the game. Chrissy Larrabee and Hayleigh Kein keyed the Mustang comeback as Kein scored five points in the final minute.

Maggie Sabine paced the Raiders with 13 points and 12 rebounds.

The Mustangs are 10th (10.8025 Heal Points) in the most recent Maine Principals’ Association Heal Point Standings for Eastern Class B. Presque Isle (9-0, 31.9444 points) is first in the region.
